A Journey From New York to Montreal: By Way of Saratoga Springs and Niagara Falls in the Year 1824 (Classic Reprint)
The manuscript record of a journey from New York to Montreal, by way of Saratoga Springs and Niagara Falls in 1824, is written on twenty-four pages of a memorandum or copy book of that period. The spelling of a few words have been corrected, otherwise the manuscript has been quite closely followed.
The record seems to be of sufficient interest to put in printed form giving as it does an account of a visit to the Indian settlements of the Buffalo and Tuscarora tribes, and an interesting description of an election in Canada.
The name of the writer of the manuscript or any member of the party who made the journey with him does not appear, he is, however, believed to have been a resident of Philadelphia.
The inconvenience to which the party were subjected by the slow method of travel in 1824 presents a marked contrast to the rapidity, ease and comfort the route may be covered today.
An edition of one hundred and ten copies only, have been printed, part of which will be distributed to, or exchanged with historical societies and libraries.
